The Davis Companies unveiled what they hope will become the premiere technology center in Pittsburgh, PA. The Union Trust Building opened up to unveil the is finishing phases of the $100M renovation started in 2014. Lights illuminated the building inviting the VIP reception to explore the artwork adorning the halls.

I don’t often use the term visionary, but to re-imagine the building whose hallways included the likes of Henry Clay Frick is a challenge to say the least. The historic monument has withstood the test of time but had become weathered. There is a series of stories I’ve heard that pushed Jon Davis in the direction of this building, but I need to call him to confirm them. Each story holds something the other large Pittsburgh renovations do not – genuineness. Regardless of what started the journey, he has seen it through.

Truefit is the anchor tenant which will be followed by Union Standard and Eddie V’s Prime Seafood. The layer cake will also add in a coffee bar that converts into a wine bar at night. There are a lot of other promises the press release makes, which for all intents and purposes I believe. The building itself will fill out with time.
